Breaking Ground on Shawna’s Dream Home in Colorado Springs

We are thrilled to begin a new video series as one of our boutique brokerage’s real estate agents begins her dream home build. Shawna and her husband purchased their land three years ago, falling in love with the gorgeous Front Range views. They are located in the Gleneagle neighborhood of Colorado Springs.

Gleaneagle is located in North Colorado Springs – an area known for its suburban feel, its planned communities, parks and award-winning schools. It’s a newer area that has received lots of new development in recent years. There is a clear planned community concept, with commercial properties on the outskirts of the area. There is also quite a bit of diversity between each neighborhood in the area. In some areas, like Cathedral Pines, you’ll find luxury, custom homes. Small acreages and horse properties can also be found on the norther edge of this area. Further south and to the east, you’ll find more functional and practical family homes.

The area of Shawna’s lot was previously a golf course that went bankrupt, before being developed into new real estate properties. The neighborhood includes 100 acres of open space and trails, along with close proximity to great schools and I-25 highway.

In the last year, they’ve been designing their dream home and are working towards the finishing touches. They’re planning to begin their build in the spring, once the Colorado winter months are over.

During our visit, she was deciding how they wanted to position their home to best take advantage of the beautiful views. They wanted to be able to see the stunning pond nearby and mountains in the distance from their dream house. We are thrilled to follow along her new home build as she creates their perfect modern farmhouse!
